New Caney Texas is set to receive it’s first leg of construction in October this year, setting the stage for it’s opening in 2015. While little has been released in the way of Concept Art, what we do know about the planned project currently titled “Grand Texas” and is scheduled to open on March 12, 2015.
The sprawling 12 acre project will consist of an 8,000 seat amphitheatre, 4 separate restaurants, retail stores, a baseball park, a wedding chapel, a full sized water park, a paintball complex, dining centres, a hotel (up to 400 rooms possible), a reception hall and a Flint Ranch Agra entertainment location .
The $205,000,000 project is expected to pull in 1.4 million visitors annually. While not staggering figures when compared to the Disney and Universal giants, it is a respectable and self sustaining number For a location with a large but limited population.
While the overall visual theme has not been confirmed, the limited images released suggest and press releases have said they will focus on an exploration of the culture and history of Texas. The park will also include the standard fair; roller coasters, a carousel, etc., with a general focus on live music and entertainment (“everything from ragtime music to zydeco music to Tex-Mex food”).
As we get closer to the beginning construction date we will bring you more details of this park and what it will mean for the industry as well as job booms for the area.
